Challenge: Paper Cutz Challenge #106 – Wish Upon a StarÃ‚Â
I started with Julie’s layout in general and went from there. Ã‚Â I ended up with the three pictures on the bottom and liked that but I struggled as I worked on the top of the page. Ã‚Â I had a crown that I kept playing with but it didn’t make the final cut. Ã‚Â I finally came up with the glitter stars and LOVE how they turned out! Ã‚Â The large star is actually multiple ones that are layered together. Ã‚Â I added the Glitter Glitz and it dried as one piece on the top and I was able to create the one large star that I wanted! Ã‚Â I’m so glad it turned out because I used almost my whole bottle! Ã‚Â The lamp on my desk gets quite hot so I set it under there and left it for a couple hours to dry. Ã‚Â That’s my best note as far as how long it took to dry. Ã‚Â Another option would have been to use my heat gun. Ã‚Â You may notice I also added small glitter dots to the background paper.
One thing I did with this layout was combined new product with my old stash to create something I like. Ã‚Â I remember when this paper first came out, I thought it was so cute. Ã‚Â Today I had a hard time making it into something I liked with the matching stickers. Ã‚Â By adding the border (new product) and glitter I was able to create a page that I was happy with and still use up some of my old stash.
Below is a closeup of the stars because they are so pretty! Ã‚Â The smaller one is just a cardstock diecut attached with 3D foam tape
